Why the Captive Health Checkup?
From the initial feasibility study, which determines what risks exist inside of a business, to the design of coverages, straight through to the ongoing management of the captive, captive planning should be done using a multidisciplinary approach.
Many captive managers in the industry claim to have the necessary skillset to handle all aspects of the planning, which is simply, a fallacy. Some managers may have a good understanding of insurance policies and claims handling, but not a clear understanding of the insurance and tax regulatory framework in which they are required to perform. Captive insurance planning is complex, and requires the expertise of insurance professionals, actuaries, and tax & corporate lawyers who keep abreast of captive legislation and domicile regulations.
Many captive managers may work out of their home in a “one-man-shop,” and may be only equipped to submit the initial paperwork to get your captive up and running. But the ability to conduct an objective feasibility study, design appropriate policies, recommend the most appropriate domicile or jurisdiction, and address the tax and legal work of the captive is necessary to keep the captive and captive owners in good standing with various regulatory entities.
Captives formed under the 831(b) election are creatures of the Internal Revenue Code, and should be handled by a team with proficiency in captive tax law and domiciliary jurisdiction.
